Abstract
The purpose of this study has been to investigate the experience of being a child challenging the food culture one was born into by going vegetarian. Five grown up informants who made a conscious and deliberate choice to abstain from meat during childhood have had the opportunity to tell their stories through a semi-structured interview. The interviews were analyzed thematically by means of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). The results indicate that children who make independent choices to become vegetarian face challenges of having to navigate the relationships with the norm group and that they base their diet choice on notions of animal domination being or feeling wrong.
